Marshall Goldsmith

Trying to be perfect, pleasing everyone all the time, and dwelling on past mistakes are barriers that women need to overcome if they want to succeed in their chosen fields. Women can realize their full potential if they develop the confidence to assert themselves more physically, have appropriate social connections at the workplace, and be proud of what they achieve. The key to getting ahead is to talk less. Research has shown that women tend to speak more than men. Women, on average, speak 20,000 words per day, while men speak only 7,000. Women's natural talent for gab is a great asset for establishing close relationships but can be problematic in a corporate or male-dominated workplace. The typical male characteristics of concision and succinctness are associated with professionalism and authority in these settings. Thus, women should practice paring down their communications to the minimum and consider in advance what message they wish to convey in order to succeed in these environments.
